Wenger over his tenure with Arsenal is known to have scouted for the best talent from abroad and has encouraged youngsters to find their way into the club. He was even called “Le Professeur” which is French for the teacher. Wenger is known to have recruited young footballers and trained them over time and put them on the path of success. One of the success stories from his recruits is that of George Weah, who he signed after being interested in Africa’s potential in football. Weah went on to win FIFA football player of the year.When start-up founders bring in new hires, it is this Wenger that they need to remember. Founders too should be open to hiring young and talented people and then help them grow within their company.
